Their Finest

Cast and crew for 'Their Finest', a romantic comedy set in World War Two, spent several weeks filming in Swansea buildings including Guildhall and the Grand Theatre during autumn 2015.

Starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Clafin, Bill Nighy and Jeremy Irons, the movie tells the story of a British Ministry of Information team making a morale-boosting film about the Dunkirk evacuation during the Battle of Britain and the London Blitz.

Swansea Council worked closely alongside the production company behind the movie to ensure that the use of the Grand Theatre and Guildhall as film locations was as hassle-free as possible.

"Swansea was a great base for us, good hotels, a short drive to all locations with plenty of facilities parking and access for our departments, and friendly helpful people. Creatively, we found terrific period (late 30's/early 40's) locations, especially in the interiors of the Guildhall which were a wonderful match for the exterior Senate House in London and needed very little changing.  In days off, our cast and crew made ample use of the beautiful beaches close by too!"

The council also helped facilitate filming in Glamorgan Street and close to Rhyddings Park Road.
